Following his UFC 165 split-decision loss at the hands of Myles Jury, TUF 16 finalist and Tri-Star Gym team member, Mike Ricci has been released from his UFC contract.
The release comes on the heels of several announced cuts made by the world’s most recognized promotion this week. Ryan Couture, Yushin Okami, Benny Alloway, Papy Abedi and James Head all received their walking papers this week as well.
Ricci was just 1-2 under the UFC banner at the time of his release, with his lone victory coming by way of decision over Colin Fletcher at UFC 158 back in March.
